Tom Turcich here. April 2nd, 2015 I left my home in New Jersey to embark on a five year trek across the seven continents. The dream of walking around the world formed at seventeen after my friend AnneMarie passed. Since her death I've decided to make the most of each day.

I write and take photos, and am hopefully getting better at both with each passing day.


Pics from all over the world!


I eat too many peanut butter sandwiches.
